Hi everybody, I'm a long time member of this forum but very rarely make comment. I'm just hapy to scan the messages and absorb the info. I built this up in March but have only got around to taking a picture now. Apologies for the poor quality, my digi cam is broken so I made do with a normal camera.
Here are the spec:

Bottom Bracket: FSA Ultimax steel 107mm
Brake Levers: Avid SD5
Rear Brake: Avid SD5 with XTR cartridge pad
Front Brake: "" "" "" ""
Cables: XTR
Cassete: XT 11-32
Chain Gaurd: Electrical Tape
Chain: Sram PC59 (4 links gone)
Crank arms: Tune Big Foot 172.5mm
Crank bolts: LX
Outer Ring: Blackspire 44t
Middle Ring: LX 32t
Ring Bolts: BBB alu
Der Front: Deore
Der Rear: Ultegra short cage
Fork: Pace RC31 cut
Frame: Salsa Scandium 18"
Grips: Cork bar tape
Handlebar: Ritchey WCS 22"
Headset: FSA Orbit
Pedals: Wellgo Mag-Ti / VP10. (Broke the right hand Wellgo!)
Quick Release: Extralite Aliens
Seat Binder: Salsa Lip Lock
Seat: Stripped SLR
Seatpost: Tune
Seatpost: Tune Starckes Stuck 350mm cut to 300mm
Shifters: LX without indicators
Font Tire: IRC Notos 1.7"
Rear Tire: Schwble Black Fire 1.7"
Front Wheelset: Heylight Superleicht, Sun UFO, DT Rev, Alu nips
Rear Wheelset: Tune Mag 200, Sun UFO, DT Rev, Alu nips

I weighed some of the components on the scale but did not include them in the listings as I thought it would be better to have complete weights. Now that the bike is built up I don't know when I'll get a chance to weigh each component. I have no way of hanging the bike up to get the weight. I'm thinking somewhere along the lines of 18lbs, what do you think?

Nice bike. How do you like the fork? I have one on one of my bikes and it is rather comfy for a stiffee , as long as you don't overdo on the distance.
Can you get us a bigger piccie or some detailed shots ?

I am pretty suprised on how well the fork actually handles. I thought I would be in for a bone shaking ride but there is some amount of vertical give evident. This combined with point and shoot rigidity makes me happy I switched from my sid. I have had a good few races with it in the season so far and can honestly say that I favour the improved steering action over the few mm's of travel. have some other detailed shots of the wheels and frame, I'll try and upload them tomorrow.

How is that Ultegra short cage rear derailleur working with that 11-32 cassette. Will it shift to all the cogs?
Yep, it works out just fine. I originally thought it couldn't possibly work, guess I was wrong. There is no noticable differeance from using this mech compared to a long cage xtr.
